2012 men's
hair trends

We have a bit of a weakness for a hot guy with a great head of hair. And by now it’s probably pretty clear that we love looking at man candy!

So we decided to combine the two and bring you a list of the celebrity men whose hairstyles are both on-trend and smoking hot! You’re welcome, ladies!

We consulted Justine Piecuch, a hair stylist at Boston's renowned Jeffrey Lyle Salon, to find out what’s hot in men’s hair this season to give the men in your lives a bit of inspiration. And since we love you all so much, we’re sharing the hot man candy with you as well!

The 411 on men's hairstyles

Many women want to make over their man but have no clue where to start. That's where we come in!

"With GQ and many other sources available for men to reach for, there's no excuse for men to have 'no style' anymore," Piecuch says.

In fact, when it comes to hair, guys have it easier than us gals in many ways. "The great thing men have that women don't is that their style sticks around for a while. Hairstyles for men don't rapidly change as fast as women's," Piecuch says.

Without further ado, we bring you the top three hairstyle trends for men for 2012! We hope this will bring both you and your man some inspiration!

Disconnection

Michael Pitt

Celeb inspiration: Michael Pitt

Why we love it: “This look is great for anyone. It can be neat for business or appropriate for relaxed looks outside of work,” Piecuch says.

Get the look: Since this hairstyle requires shaving down the sides, it's super easy to keep clean and make sure the sides don't get unruly. The great part about this look? Your man can wear the top however he wants: Slicked back, pompadour, etc.

Maintenance: Four to five weeks between cuts.

Clean business

Ryan Gosling

Celeb inspiration: Ryan Gosling

Why we love it: "This is like the man's bob; it will never go out of style. This style is for the man who truly likes to be put together," Piecuch says.

Get the look: This clean cut classic business look has been around for quite some time and was even sported by many of the Kennedys. To achieve the hairstyle, part hair on the side and push it back a bit in the front.

Maintenance: Three to four weeks in between cuts.

Long hair

Celeb inspiration: Blair Redford

Why we love it: "I swear this is the fantasy man's look! This cut is for the very low maintenance man who is really laid back and naturally very good looking," Piecuch says.

Get the look: Does your man have wavy locks? Awesome! Piecuch says this hairstyle often looks best when men have a bit of wave. With the right cut, all he needs is a small amount of product. All he has to do is drag his hands from the front to the back and he's good to go!

Maintenance: Eight or more weeks between cuts.
